As is the case almost every April, the quarterback position will be driven by underclassmen at the top of the position board.  Andrew Luck aside, there’s a nice lot of prospects that could develop into starters at the next level.  And though several of the seniors have disappointed, they do come with a nice amount of upside potential should they get their game back on track.
